OpenNIC for pfsense DNS

Does anyone have much experience with OpenNIC DNS on pfsense?
Its an alternative DNS system to what is widely used.
Seems their main interest is to get away from ICANN and logging for a number of reasons.
It seems to resolve everything without issues but without ICANN or government controls.
I ran a list of these servers through benchmarks.
They come up as faster that DynDNS, slower than OpenDNS but on par with Google's.
No filtering, No redirects. Seems solid so far. (so far is only 2 days :P)
18.104.22.168 Fast Reliable Logs deleted hourly New Jersy
22.214.171.124 Fast Reliable Logs Deleted daily New Jersy
126.96.36.199 FAST Reliable Bind logging only Chicago
188.8.131.52 Fast Reliable No Logs Dallas TX
184.108.40.206 Reliable Logs deleted daily Buffalo NY
But I have exactly 2 days experience testing these on a PFsense box so though I'd ask if there are any horror stories or anything?
I was just labeling some as fast or slow and reliable or not and location.
My originals list was 2x as long but I immediately cut out the slow or unresponsive servers.
(I got off on this tangent a couple days ago when my DynDNS was being unresponsive and making me wait forever)
